All Year Round Sports Pitch Options
If you are looking to obtain maximum availability and usage from your new sports pitch, let us help. We offer a complete service, from initial site surveys and planning through to design approval, expert construction and fine finishing.
Thanks to advances in materials technology and resurfacing techniques, today’s cost-effective options include:
- Acrylic and polymeric surfacing.
- 3G rubber crumb, also known as needle-punched 3G grass.
- Sand-dressed artificial turf.
- Sand-filled artificial grass.
3G sports pitches and MUGAs (multiple use games areas) are replacing the old astroturf surfaces. Most all-weather sports pitches are three thousand square metres or more in area. Importantly, they feature adequate drainage to enable outdoor play all year round, even during periods of inclement weather.
You might select a 3G artificial surfaces or synthetic turf for your new all-weather five-a-side, football and rugby pitch, for instance. In contrast, tarmacadam and acrylic-based surfaces work well for games such as netball and tennis.
Where applicable during the refurbishment of all-weather pitches, we use a turf muncher machine to remove old sand and rubber from the artificial grass. Beneficially for the environment, this specialist machinery ensures maximum recycling of the worn-out material.
